Analysts predicted the Jets 30th-ranked offense to be even worse in 2013. The proposition of starting rookie QB Geno Smith or turnover-prone Mark Sanchez with the same set of skill players to the terrible offense was alarming. Yet, quietly the Jets rank 10th in total offensive yards this year.
New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and rookie quarterback Geno Smith have crafted an explosive offense. The Jets rank 3rd in time of possession and have run more plays on offense than Chip Kelly’s Eagles or Sean Payton’s Saints (only Baltimore and New England have run more). The Jets also are one of only three teams to be top 10 in total offense and total defense.
Is the Jets offense actually good now that Marty Mornhinweg has arrived in NY? Is Geno Smith their next franchise QB? Or is this all just an early season aberration?
